Bring on The Thunder!

FAWCETT CITY, MAY 3 — As a former semi-pro ball player and full-time sports commentator for both the Daily Planet and WHIZ Syndicated Sports Radio I think it’s safe to say that I know good basketball when I see it. It’s with those qualifiers, not that I’m a long time Fawcett City native, that I say that the Fawcett City Thunder are bringing the noise and look tough to beat in this year’s basketball finals.
Solomon Williams’ seemingly unstoppable defense has been solid all season and looks to be just as impenetrable in the post-season, with a whopping ten steals in last week’s game alone. Coupled with the aptly named Johnny Hooper’s offensive leadership and the Thunder look flawless. It’s no surprise that they’ve already clinched their position in the next round with a 4-0 sweep over the Memphis Grizzlies.
Sure you could argue that it’s early in the post and you can’t rule out the traditional powerhouses like the Gotham Guardsmen, or the rising newcomers like the Opal City Gems, but if you ask this reporter’s opinion, something magical is happening in Fawcett City this year. Go Thunder!
